Surnames: Lowry, Loury, Lowery
Would like any information on Lazarus Lowry. Born about 1688. He and brother James went to Pennsylvania about 1729 and became Indian Traders. He is referred to as Scotch-Irish, which is uniquely an American term. It refers to descendents of the Presbyterians from lowland Scotland who settled in Ulster in the 17th century and then migrated to America. He was excommunicated from the Presbyter of Donegal in Pennsylvania for his obstinancy. (He sept suing other Ulster immigrants). Most people have him born in Derry County, Donegal, Ireland and his father either Thomas or James. No proof of either. Supposely, at the time of the Plantation, only Antrim And Down were to be settled entirely by Scots.

Hearth Money Rolls, 1669, N. Antrim, list Thomas Loury Sen and Thomas Loury Jun in Kilconway, Finvoy, Carrowreath.
DNA test results link my Lowery family to Lazarus.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
